My little protege

I was given this quarter size violin, in exchange for teaching piano lessons. The little violin was the perfect size for Gavin. We had our first "lesson" and he did really good. He knows how to hold the violin, and knows where to play the bow on the strings. Enjoy his beautiful song!

Choo! Choo!

The AF library had a fun thing going last weekend where they had some trains set up and kids could come look and play with them. We thought it would be a fun thing to take Gavin to, because he LOVES trains right now. He was so excited the whole time, and I had a sad boy when it was time to leave. They have it going on again this Friday and Saturday for anyone who is interested! We'll be there again!

Brushing teeth

This is what Kyson does every morning while I am getting ready. He sits in the sink and brushes his teeth.

I just brought home a couple of truck books from the library for Gavin. He could spend hours looking at all the pictures of the "Big Trucks!"

Kyson is 8 months!

We have really seen Kysons true personality come out this month! He is going to be our teaser and copycat. When Gavin is crying for some reason, Kyson will copy him, and it sounds like he is making fun of him, and then Gavin gets mad at Kyson and says, "Baby! Stop!" I can see it when they are older. Gavin will be getting mad about something, Kyson will make fun of him for getting mad, and then Gavin will get mad at him for making fun of him. I am not ready for that! But for now, it is pretty humerous.

At 8 months, Kyson:
-Says "dadadada"
-Randomly does a high pitch scream, just for fun.
-He is very adventerous. He has fallen down the stairs a handful of times (you'll see his little bruise) You'd think either we would learn to put the baby gate up, or he'll learn to stop falling down!
-Loves cheerios
-Has been introduced to vegetables, and loves them. His favorite is probably green beans. He has been eating a few fruits, and loves them as well. He loves his food!
-He was sleeping 10-12 hours a night, until the time changed, so hopefully we'll get back to that schedule. He takes 2-3 naps a day.
-Loves to play with Gavin

I love this boy!

Gavin is now POTTY TRAINED!!! It is amazing how all of a sudden, he decided to go potty in the toilet and hasn't had an accident for 2 weeks now! He is such a big boy and I am so proud of him!

Happy Halloween!

I think Halloween is Gavin's favorite holiday of all. He seemed to have so much fun with everything we did. A couple of days ago, we went to Doug and Autumn's to carve pumpkins, and Gavin did most of the cleaning of the pumpkin. It was awesome! I didn't have to do a single thing!

On Friday, we went trick or treating downtown at the stores. It was soooo cold, but Gavin had fun going in with Braxton and his little friend Brielle.

This year was so much fun with Gavin trick-or-treating, because he understood what was going on. If it were up to him, he would eat candy all night! Kyson was just cute...he also wanted the candy, but he's just a little too little for that!

Braxton and Gavin with their finished pumpkins!

I dressed up as a witch for school. It was a fun day!

Gavin was my little froggy.
